Noelle is one of the four available characters in Genshin Impact's new Hangout Event series. If you want to woo this dedicated maid, use our guide to unlock all six of her unique endings and max out your total rewards.
Hangout Event Series I: Noelle Guide
Before you can unlock the Hangout Events, you'll need to have met the following conditions:
- Adventure Rank 26 and above
- Have story keys (earn one key for every eight commissions completed)
- Completed the Archon Quest: Prologue: Act III - Song of the Dragon and Freedom
There are six total endings in Noelle's Hangout Event, meaning there are also six different photos you can collect by exploring every route available in her character quest. The Genshin Impact Hangout Events series won't punish you for choosing the wrong option—in fact, miHoYo encourages players to unlock all of the endings by revisiting certain scenes and choosing different outcomes! Almost every playthrough awards you with primogems and the opportunity to collect more photos, so don't worry if you select a wrong choice the first time around. You can even unlock multiple achievements during Noelle's event.
Below, we've outlined the steps you need to take to complete each of Noelle's six endings.
A Maid Above Ground
When you first speak to Noelle just outside Mondstadt, choose this response in answer to her training inquiry: "Of course, where do you want to start?"
Noelle will detail her daily steps and admit that something still seems to be missing. Tell her, "What you lack is strength!"
After a trip to the training grounds, you'll again have the option of telling Noelle what quality you think she's lacking. Continue insisting that she needs to build even more strength, leading to a mining and monster hunting quest. After smashing rocks and eliminating foes, you'll attain the "A Maid Above Ground" ending.
A Defender's Strength Is Their Will
In the choices map, found in your current Hangout Event route, return to the training grounds with Noelle. This time, when Noelle says her training level is not enough, ask, "Is it because you lack real-world fighting experience?"
The two of you will set out to find learning experiences for Noelle. During your travel, you'll encounter someone being attacked by monsters and save them. In doing so, Noelle discovers that the true source of her strength is her desire to protect others, allowing her to transcend her usual limitations. You'll also earn the "...For I Am Duty Bound" achievement.
Whisper of the Paper Rose
At the beginning of the Hangout quest, respond to Noelle with, "Of course, where do you want to start?" Then, tell her that what she lacks is rest.
Agreeing to take a break, Noelle returns with you to Mondstadt only to be accosted by a civilian named Bea, who is desperate to get her crush Quinn's attention. When Noelle ponders which type of gift Quinn would like best, say, "Gifts convey our intentions, we should choose carefully."
When selecting a gift for Quinn, you can choose between a Squirrel Wood Carving or a Frostening Bottle. Picking the wood carving will make your heart gauge drop by one, but there isn't any further effect on the quest.
Even after obtaining the perfect gift, Bea is still worried about the location for her date. You'll be asked to tour and take pictures of three different potential date spots. When you speak to Bea again afterwards, suggest that she have her date at Cape Oath. She loves the idea, but Noelle is disappointed that no one seems interested these days in visiting Windrise. You'll suggest that the two of you go yourselves, leading to this precious moment where Noelle gifts you a paper version of her favorite flower.
A Conundrum Called Love
Follow the first two steps of the previous ending and urge Noelle to rest. When the two of you speak with Bea this time, claim that the gift "shouldn't matter, it's the thought that counts." As a result, you'll cook up a Mondstadt grilled fish for Bea to give to Quinn. Unsurprisingly, the gift backfires when Quinn refuses to accept the meal. An upset Bea will comment that Noelle can't be good at everything. Saddened, Noelle takes off for the library to study romance so she can be of greater help in the future.
A Cold Reception
At the beginning of the Hangout Event, tell Noelle, "You know... it's okay not to be a knight." This will steer you towards a quest involving a suspicious man named Alois. Despite his obvious lies and shady behavior, Noelle insists upon helping the man and making him feel welcome in Mondstadt.
Together, you'll escort Alois around town to demonstrate what Mondstadt has to offer. When he comments on each new experience, respond with, "It's made especially for you." This answer sounds increasingly threatening to Alois, who bolts at the first chance he gets. His sudden disappearance leads to a disappointed Noelle, who blames herself for his untimely departure.
"Goodbye, Miss Maid!"
Tell Noelle "it's okay not to be a knight" to begin the Alois quest thread. When the three of you reach Mondstadt, keep responding to Alois by saying, "That's just Noelle's way of showing hospitality." Repeating this eventually calms Alois's nerves and makes him realize that Noelle has no ulterior motives in trying to assist him. This allows for a more satisfactory conclusion.
These are all of the available endings for Noelle's Hangout Event. Don't forget to claim your ending rewards in the Hangout Events banner once you've completed them all!
